Chartered Insurance Professional (CIP) and Fellow Chartered Insurance Professional (FCIP).

The Institute offers two designations. The CIP is a good starting point for most people working in the insurance industry, and a prerequisite for attaining an FCIP designation. The FCIP is designed for professionals who wish to move into leadership or management roles in the property and casualty (P & C) industry.
